Android has 5000 mAh batteries - imagine if Apple did the same.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Every year, Android smartphones manage to cram bigger and bigger batteries into their smartphones. Most 2020 smartphones are between 4000 and 4500, and some of them do reach the 5000 mark.

 

Meanwhile, every time Apple launches a new iPhone, the battery size is always a big disappointment for me: 3000 mAh on average. They make up for with the raw efficiency and RAM management of iOS, but this only leaves me wondering: what if? What if they did bother with a bigger battery?

Imagine the disgustingly high battery life that the ROG Phone II (6000 mAh! Twice that of all iPhones, except the 11 Pro Max) if it was an Apple device running iOS.

 

Wasted potential I say.

They have bettery battery management but it always comes to "muscle memory". You will use your phone more if you have better autonomy, and charge it every night, so if it's not 2-3 days use, companies don't care to put bigger batteries

You want to sacrifice 0.2mm of thickness of your iPhone? Are you insane?!

No that would be insane. 

I can't hold a phone that's thicker than 0.000000000000000000001mm.

If it's too thick, it will get fat-shamed by billions of transistors with for example 7 nm gate length, can't have that.

I think Apple doesn't opt for bigger batteries, because it can get away with the current ones, saving cost. On top of that, it can advertise shorter charging times (for the same charging current of course).

While I do get the obvious joke, this isn't even a good excuse.

The Galaxy Note 10+ is thinner than the iPhone(s) 11, yet it manages to have a 4200 mAh battery AND a whole pen into the damn thing.

But what about the cooling? Or the headphone jack?

The new Samsung M41 will apparently have a 7,000 mAh battery.

Imagine comparing the most popular brand to every single one of it's competitors combined.

The one and only notorious Android phone maker I can think of who cram smaller batteries in their smartphones than Apple is Google, and that's part of the reason why the Pixel 4 was a massive disappointment for the tech community.

Same for most high end androids

Good point. iPhones are very capable smartphones and if used to the full potential they may need more storage down the road.

this is debatable. They implemented a notch for a reason. People who don't like it either stay on ios because of the ecosystem or just switch to android.

I think they implemented it into the iphone 8 the same year samsung released the s8, but im not entirely sure.

 

Back to the topic: Apple can totally make a 5000mah battery iPhone for what they are priced at and it would take a lot of time to charge them with the 18w charger(if they decide include it in the box ofc).

Bigger batteries are bad for the environment. More efficient phones are the way to go.

My iPhone 11 with it’s 3 AH battery outlasted my prior Android phone with a substantially larger 4 AH battery. 
 

Even with a larger battery, my Android (LeEco Le Pro 3with LineageOS) still went through a few percent in standby usage over a night, while my iPhone remains exactly where I left it come morning. This was after using every trick in the book (shutting off gps, Bluetooth, wifi, battery saver enabled, etc) to keep standby power down on my Android. Putting it into airplane mode brought it much closer to parity with the iPhone, but losing the radio is a pretty major trade off at that point, and I may as well power off the phone entirely. 
 

With moderate usage (fair bit of browsing and some FaceTime), a genuine 2 days worth of battery life is within easy grasp.  40% is plenty for a work day. 


The pursuit of knowledge for the sake of knowledge.

Forever in search of my reason to exist.

Do you guys stare at your phone all day? Do you ever go outside? I’m guessing probably not. I know you guys don’t care, but I would rather not walk around with a 5000 mah lipo in my pocket.

I walk with a 4700 mAh battery in my pocket and I barely notice.

Ohhh. Like those Samsung phones that kept exploding. I use 3S 5000mah packs on my RC.. that’s a lot of punch. You guys are going to do what you guys do, I’m just saying I wouldn’t want to have that much lipo in my pocket.
